March 18, 2016 (John 10:31-43)

H. G. Wells said that Jesus was the greatest teacher in the history of the world. But, he didn’t believe Jesus was the Son of God. C. S. Lewis thought Wells’ position was inconsistent. Lewis said we’d never call a human being who claimed equality with God a great teacher. He said we might call Him a fool, a madman, or the devil, but we’d never call Him a great teacher.
When it comes to Jesus, Lewis said we can’t have our cake and eat it, too. Jesus was either a fool who should be pitied, a madman who should be shunned, the devil who should be stoned, or the Lord who should be adored. What convinces you that Jesus is the Lord? To see Jesus is to see God’ to listen to Jesus is to listen to God, to love Jesus is to love God.

One thought on “March 18, 2016 (John 10:31-43)

  1. “What convinces me that Jesus is the Lord,” the living God? That conviction comes from knowing, and the knowing has come from seeking Him over these many years, in good times and in bad. A conversation was begun that only long time lovers know and understand. Many a husband and wife know this kind of communication that takes place without words.
